Vladmir Putin Boycotts London 2012 Olympics (Because He Can)
May 31, 2012 12:06
This year, 120 heads of state are scheduled to travel to London to attend the Olympics, which is a big deal since only 87 came to Beijing for the 2008 games. Unfortunately, Russian President Vladimir Putin will be snubbing the whole thing altogether.
According to The Guardian, the boycott is intended to express Putin's displeasure towards British governmental policies, which include a Parliamentary proposal to bar senior Russian government officials accused of human rights violations from entering the country. But don't worry, Putin is expected to send Russian Prime Minister/Occasional President Dmitry Medvedev in his stead.
In meantime, just what will the Russian President be up to? We
wouldn't be surprised if he held his own version of the games, starring
only himself, a bow and arrow, a bunch of teenagers given a running head start.
